As Soundboards go
it's far from a perfect 5 stars.
1) J Straw- the whole song is spent raising and lowering the levels of different instruments.
2) Jerry's great midi work in the first set- his solos sound far away, and turned down in the mix, esp. On the Rd. Again and Roses.
3) Great night for Brent- he's on, and turned way up this mix.
4) The Other One- great version, Phil does some things I've never heard before... but there is something going wrong technically wit this copy.
5) This version has a raw unrefined quality vs. the matrix 60/40 version mastered by C Miller.

Jerry barley audible, atleast 2nd set
I'm sure this is a killer show. No doubt. 82 red rocks killed.
We all know the SDBs from this run are less-than-par. We appreciate the efforts of those who get these boards of rare shows out.
Phil is high and great, Brent is too high and Jerry is too low. But its no big deal. Setlist and length wise, this one looks like a warm up to the eventual "superior" last night of this run. Still always great to hear some early 80s dead with nice Brenting and quality energy.
5 (i'm sure) for performance
3 for sound

sound cleans up after a while
better sounding than I initially heard. Even by the end of jack straw it cleans up....lots of hiss to start, don't let it fool you
great show, great tour

This show SHOULD be known by ALLLL heads !!
I agree with IowaNic and say this show is essential to any head.
From the first day I heard it a couple years ago I fell for it and it's remained in the top 3 of my pics from ALL GD history.
I know that's a bold statement, or a lot to say, but just crank this 2nd set as loud as you can, lay back and let it take you for a ride!!

what a night
This has long been one of my favorite shows. I was there and loved it--one of those amazing Red Rocks nights, before it got too crowded--and had the tape for years. Great to hear it again. It was rainy, hence the term "Wet Rocks" for these shows. I think that gave them all an especially intimate and cozy feel.
The second set is among the finest GD music you'll find, of any era. Starts right off totally psychedelic and stays that way. The Terrapin nestled in between Playin' and a Playin' jam before the drums is priceless. One of the most beautiful and nuanced Terrapins you'll hear, before they got all bombastic with it all the time. Brent goes off in the Playin' jam.
Then how cool to end the whole set with a Playin' reprise out of a gorgeous Stella Blue.
A perfect Grateful Dead night that should be far better known and widely listened to!
